    Until this program starts allowing snapshot, I don't see any reason to use it over others like virtual box.

    You can still have "snapshot" functionality by manually copying the VM folder to some other location and copying it back to "revert snapshot". While not seamless as a dedicated snapshot function it does the job for me.

    P.S can someone post screenshots of the new interface, can't seem to find them (I assume it's exactly like in Workstation version).

    Good to know the screenies are current. If you decide to install v5 perhaps you can give us your impressions?

    It will have to wait, since HD space is sparse ATM. :)
